Ever since she was a little girl, Miss
Inez has had a love for children. From the way she used to care for
her baby dolls, it would seem that working with children was her destiny.
At age 9, she started babysitting many of her nieces and nephews, and so her
In 1978, Miss Inez officially began
her childcare business in her home with only one child. Her purpose
was to provide the kind of childcare that she couldn't find for herself.
Soon enough, Miss Inez had a house full of children that she would teach and
take on field trips. Parents, as well as children, fell in love with
Miss Inez and her business grew even more. She hired help and added a
room to her house so that the children would have more room to play. And
thus, the name "Children's House" was born.
In 1999, Miss Inez was able to build a
six classroom childcare center. Soon after, she opened a second
childcare center with extended and weekend hours. She understood from
experience that many parents don't always work a 9 to 5 job, and that
round-the-clock childcare was a necessity in the community.
Miss Inez credits the key to her
success to her love for children and to them knowing it. For many of
her children, she has become like a second mother, and for many parents, a
dream come true.
